Rhymes With Fuchsia

Friday, October 19, 2007


I'm taking a brief time-out from Rhinebeck madness to tell you about my contest swag: after a geological age of entering contests with wild abandon and winning nothing at all, I won three in succession — and then there were a couple I didn't win but yarn rained down on me anyway.

Clockwise from top right: a lovely ball of Saucy from Lisa, a whole collection of goodies including the Trekking 126 as well as some pretty Post-its, a very cute sheepie magnet and a yellow Chibi from Jane, three balls of Jo Sharp Silkroad Tweed from Roxie, some splendid pink and purple handpainted sock yarn from the multitalented Dave, and a stylish and practical Blogger Bingo button from Norma. Many, many thanks to all of you! Yes, Dolores, I do feel lucky.

And speaking of Blogger Bingo, I took Roxie's advice, and Grant took another picture.

Not a whole lot better. What can I tell you? I guess I'd better go finish winding that yarn.

If you're going, I hope to see you there. If you're not going, I'll miss you, and I'll take lots of pictures.


  • You're smiling in this one :) Must be the Rhinebeck fever.

  • A much nicer photo of you! Have fun @ Rhinebeck. Good going on winning swag, very nice.

  • That's a great picture! Will you have to walk around Rhinebeck holding the yarn like that, though?

    And now, seeing all your swag, I suddenly understand why you told us you could behave yourself at Rhinebeck (yarn-wise, anyway).

  • This pic IS better-you look like I think you look (does that make any sense?????) Oh, e does have a point there!

  • Waiting for the pictures. Grant did a better job, as I hope you were smiling at Rhinebeck.

  • See, people like to see you thinking of cashmere! (Great smile!!)

  • And of course, you have the most creative button placement at Rhinebeck! I giggled when I saw you on Norma's blog!
